Heartbeat is a moody, synth pop, adult alternative rock song with a Madonna-like melody and a vocal performance that echoes Stevie Nicks while sounding totally authentic. The electronics give the track an 80’s flare and the harmonies elevate the cut above a typical pop track.


Written by Nicki Kris and Kevin McNoldy
Recorded/Mixed/Mastered by Kevin McNoldy - CPhonic Records

Heartbeat is the follow-on to last summer’s smash hit Captain America, and the 2nd single off my upcoming album with the same title scheduled for release, summer 2018. Heartbeat takes a very different approach yet continues the story line introduced with Captain America around the continuous 24-hour-a-day turmoil surrounding the current US Commander In Chief, the various sexual misconduct scandals, and how there is never an opportunity to come up for air before another international “embarrassment" occurs.
There's firestorm in your eyes
nowhere to hide
I'm out of sight
You've been looking for a fight
I'm on a dead end street
you’re like a blinding light

Oh and I'm caught up in your riptide
feels like I'm being buried alive
Oh I'm a hostage to your greed
there’s defeat in every heartbeat

Each new day feels like the night
I choke for air in your web of lies
I am running out of time your knife cuts deep
I’ve been paralyzed

Oh and I'm caught up in your riptide
feels like I'm being buried alive
Oh I'm a hostage to your greed
there’s defeat in every heartbeat

I've got to fight through the fear
things are not how they appear
I've got the truth on my side
You are not winning the war
cause I can take this and more
and I will make things right again

You make promises you can't keep
sow what you reap
your words are cheap
I am fighting for my life
it ends here won’t make the same mistake twice

Oh and I'm caught up in your riptide
feels like I'm being buried alive
Oh I'm a hostage to your greed
there’s defeat in every heartbeat

We've got to fight through the fear
things are not how they appear
We've got the truth on our side
You are not winning the war
cause we can take this and more
and we will make things right again

Oh and I'm caught up in your riptide
feels like I'm being buried alive
Oh I'm a hostage to your greed
there’s defeat in every heartbeat

Oh and I'm caught up in your riptide
feels like I'm being buried alive
Oh I'm a hostage to your greed
there’s defeat in every heartbeat

The artist sells herself short when she compares her melody to Madonna. I enjoyed her singing. Love is a trap door you fall in.
